Be merciful unto me, O God: for man would swallow me up ; he fightingdailyoppresseth me.
Mine enemiesa would dailyswallow me up: for they be many that fight against me, O thou most High.3
What time I am afraid , I will trust in thee.
In God I will praise his word, in God I have put my trust ; I will not fear what flesh can do unto me.
Every day they wrest my words: all their thoughts are against me for evil.6
They gather themselves together , they hide themselves, they mark my steps, when they wait for my soul.7
Shall they escape by iniquity? in thine anger cast down the people, O God.8
Thou tellest my wanderings:put thou my tears into thy bottle: are they not in thy book?9When I cry unto thee, then shall mine enemiesturnback: this I know ; for God is for me.
In God will I praise his word: in the LORD will I praise his word.11
In God have I put my trust : I will not be afraid what man can do unto me.
Thy vows are upon me, O God: I will renderpraises unto thee.
For thou hast delivered my soul from death: wilt not thou deliver my feet from falling, that I may walkbeforeGod in the light of the living?
